Subject: "That's Otis"
Otis was Weir's dog that somehow found his way on stage (round up the usual suspects...Parrish?) during the close of one of the 1980 acoustic sets at the Warfield. Picture Jer and Bob sitting on barstools singing, oh so loverly,...add Garcia coaxing the beast of Mt. Tam on stage while Bobby is furiously jestering to Otis to go back. Jer won and Otis stood at the stage edge staring into the darkness of the vast Warfield Theater. All along "Ripple" continues with audience cheers captured on the Deads "Reckoning" recording. It was a great run in SF, drinking in the upstairs bar with local legend Herb Caen while watching monitors of the backstage antics of Frankin and Davis..."Help Jerry's Kids" worth a laugh on youtube. Thanks to "Tex" for several nights of tickets at the door for $10 each. Priceless. dan'l
Subject: Anyone remember Otis?
I was at one of these concerts and a dog came on stage during the accoustic set a sat there for a while. Anyone remember that?
Subject: Great Show-Greatest Story
This show is very nice...note the Greatest Story is from DeadSet...listen to jerrys last solo which has been altered...by far the best version ever played by the band....

Subject: Another fine show from fall of '80
Another great show from this really special run of shows of Sept/Oct 1980. The accoustic first set is superb. This Bird Song is one of the accoustic version of this run. At this point, Ripple has been transformed from a rarely played old chestnut to a mature standard, closing out the accoustic set almost every night.
The second set is not as good, with some uninspired performances on the whole. Things heat up again in the third set, including a nice Terrapin.

This is a real good Warfield show. Don't miss it.
Subject: Yet another gem
Great sound, great show. Download it!
Subject: Fade ins arent good
The acoustic set is clean, but someone has spliced the crowd noise at the end and beginning of the songs very poorly (Beginning of On the Road Again case in point). It really distracts from the flow of the set.
